If you own and use some kind of Android device (e.g. a smart phone or a tablet) as well, you should be extremely cautious these days because specialists working at pcthreat.com have come across a new threat called Maxon Click. Even though it is usually referred to as a “virus” by experts, it seems that Maxon Click is another ad-supported program created for devices with the Android OS.

Of course, we will describe this infection as well, and will briefly tell you how this software could have sneaked on your device. Continue reading!
Maxon Click is known to be an ad-supported program (adware) that secretly enters Android devices and then starts showing commercial advertisements. Users complain that they mainly see pop-ups from such domains as Attentioner.com and MaxonClick.com. They also notice that legitimate websites that have never shown advertisements before have started displaying commercials. These pop-ups and other kinds of ads you see while surfing the web using your browser might expose your Android device to threats really soon. Speaking more specifically, you might start the download of bogus software, or end up on a dangerous third-party website containing threats. Actually, ad-supported programs do not seek to cause harm to users’ PCs; however, they simply display ads in order to generate money for their owners using the pay-per-click method. As you have understood, adware programs are not created to act in a useful way for you, so it would be best to delete Maxon Click immediately after you start seeing ads of Maxon Click or detect this software installed on your device.
As we have already explained you, Maxon Click is not a virus, and it cannot destroy your device; however, it does not mean that it is a good idea to keep it because it might still expose to threats and not allow you to freely use your phone, tablet, or another device. As we are sure that this software is not the only one, we want to remind you how ad-supported software can enter your device in order to help you prevent it from getting in. First of all, Maxon Click and similar threats are spread through email attachments. This method is not very effective because spam emails are filtered these days. Secondly, adware might enter devices if people download software (e.g. videos and ringtones) from unreliable software. Third, adware might enter your system in a bundle with another legitimate application you download from the web.
Even though adware programs are not very harmful infections, they might now allow you to use your device freely. Therefore, you need to take care of the safety of your device in advance. Luckily, there are security tools available exclusively for Android OS as well. You can easily download them from Google Play. Of course, this is not enough to protect the system from harm. Security specialists say that you should also surf only those websites that you know are reliable. Last but not least, it would be wise to ignore spam emails and emails sent by unknown senders.
The sooner you remove Maxon Click from your device, the better because this undesirable software might attract other bad programs to your Android device. Below are provided instructions that should help you to stop annoying pop-ups and other commercials in the blink of an eye. If the manual method turns out to be ineffective, you should use a trustworthy automatic scanner to eliminate this undesirable software. As we have already mentioned, you can download it from Google Play. In case you ever detect a version of Maxon Click for Windows, you can quickly erase it from your PC using the SpyHunter antimalware suite.
